College Football Playoff Contender Resumes

The College Football Playoff is taking the college football world by storm as ESPN brings in waves of viewers each Tuesday night at 7 pm to unveil the latest from the now 12-person selection committee. As we look to see who will play for the 2014-2015 National Championship let us first line up the resumes for each of the teams still in contention for the 4-school playoff to begin on January 1st in Rose and Sugar Bowls. In the meantime, stay up to date with the College Football Playoff standings and don't miss our weekly college bowl game projections here from CollegeSports-fans.com as we take our turn picking which teams will go bowling this postseason.



The final look at the resume game shows that Baylor's resume, with wins over #6 TCU and #11 Kansas State, to be the best two win combination on the board, thanks in part to the SEC West cannibalizing themselves. #1 Alabama does have wins over #16 Missouri and #19 Auburn, both of whom would likely win most other conferences yet are not highly ranked in the College Football Playoff standings. #3 Florida State has the weakest Conference Division at #9 but falls in line with the rest of the group with 7 wins over bowl eligible teams. While #4 Ohio State gained a lot of momentum in the media thanks to the 59-0 thumping of Wisconsin, they have easily the worst loss on the board falling at home by two touchdowns to a 6-6 Virginia Tech squad that battled for bowl eligibility.
